of that country. the results of the fighting could be seen in some eastern cities as the kiev government moves against pockets of resistance. all of this comes after a deadly day of clashes in the city of odessa. at least 42 people were killed there. well over 100 were hurt. nbc's reporter is with us from ukraine. what can you tell us about the standoff between the ukrainian military and the separatists? >> as you know, the ukrainian special forces announced a counter terrorist operation here in the east of ukraine. and two helicopters were reported shot down with two servicemen reported dead yesterday morning. that was in the early hours of the morning. and despite that, there have been no dependent confirmations by journalists who have been in the area but have not seen much of any military action going on. now, the roads surrounding the small towns that have been taken over by separatists have these check points. some of them are operated by the militia. some of them are operated by the military. but there is no clear visible mass strength of the military in the area, despite the russian me
